Will my 990 need Giant Loop heat shields?

Next week I'm flying to a cold, damp northern city to pick up my new-to-me 2011 990adv. It is my intention to throw my Giant Loop Coyote over the back of it and hit the road home asap. And the GPS, XM etc.

It occured to me that I have no idea if the 990 will need the Giant Loop Heat Shields.

Can anyone *with experience* with this combination (I'm quite capable of guessing, assuming, using clairvoyance) that can answer this question? If I do, I need to order them and ship them to the bike right away so they're there on my arrival.

Thank you.

You'll need something to keep the bag from hitting the exhaust. GL shield is the easiest.

Easier to crush a coke can and stuff it underneath.

Nope. I've got the Great Basin bag and if you put it on the seat itself the bag rests on the rear panels.

As mentioned, if you put it where the passenger sits you are good to go. If you ride with a passenger you will most likely need them. Personally I like the coke can idea as I am not fond of clamping stuff to my exhaust.

Yeah, I did something similar on my 525.

Did a job on the bag, too.

Yeah my bag had a nice hole in it too. Not sure if I want to tell you why that hole is nice and round, and the shape of a MSR fuel cylinder that I happened to have packed at that location in the bag and was getting direct contact with muffler making it nice an hot. :) So get the shield

Hmm....haven't seen that before. I need to look at mine when I load it up again and check on that.

Nope. Ridden many thousands of miles with a coyote combined with a duffle on lots of dirt and pavement. Coyote runs flatter then the great basin. Only suggestion is to throw some tape on the side panels if you do not want to scratch them. This is a great setup on the katoom

I ran with no heat shields for a few years and had no problems. Then I stuffed an item haphazardly into my GL and it shifted the load just enough to toast the corner of the bag.

USE THE HEAT SHIELDS!!
